Are you having issues with your wisdom teeth? You may be having problems due to lack of space in your mouth, resulting in pressure on your other teeth. Wisdom teeth removal can be an effective solution to resolve the pain and discomfort you feel. Here are three tips to help you recover quickly after wisdom teeth removal.

Manage Your Pain

If you experience pain after wisdom teeth removal, you can minimize the discomfort with over-the-counter medications. Stay away from aspirin, as it can stall clotting and increase the risk of bleeding. Another way you can manage your pain is through the use of ice packs to eliminate swelling.

Maintain Proper Wound Care

After wisdom teeth removal, your sockets may discharge some minor ooze for at least a day. Proper wound care is vital to prevent infection. Biting down on gauze for a few minutes can help stop bleeding sockets. Clean your wounds by rinsing with salt water according to the aftercare instructions you will receive from your dentist.

Healing clots can become dislodged if you rinse your mouth during the first few days. These clots help protect sensitive nerves from exposure that can lead to infection. If this happens, you could develop a dry socket that can cause severe pain and other complications. Contact your dentist if your pain persists or you are experiencing other symptoms.

Heal Faster with the Right Foods and Drinks

You will need to follow a special diet for a few days following wisdom teeth removal. Stick to soft foods and beverages at room temperature. Take small sips without using a straw. Sucking on straws can dislodge the clots in the affected socket. Introduce foods slowly that require chewing to minimize your pain.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
